He has also presented and published many abstracts, articles, and book chapters that have used isokinetics in testing, rehabilitation or training techniques.

Davies presented in the two workshops focused on Application of Isokinetic Testing and Rehabilitation (one workshop focused on the Shoulder Complex and the other on the Knee, using an Integrated OKC and CKC Approach).

The presentations were followed by a practical demonstration and hands-on workshop featuring the pioneer in isokentic testing and rehab technology, the Biodex Multi-Joint System 4. >>

The World’s First Semi-Recumbent Elliptical Cross Trainer, Just Got Better!

Shirley, NY, June 7, 2012—Biodex has redesigned their semi-recumbent elliptical cross trainer, recently re-introduced as the NEW BioStep 2 with exceptional ergonomic comfort. Its low-impact elliptical motion reduces the jarring start/stop direction change often associated with other recumbent steppers, eliminating the need for users to lift or strike their feet on the footplate.  Pivoting hand grips and articulating footplates add to the comfort while strengthening the primary muscles associated with balance, gait and mobility. BioStep 2 is simple to use, requires minimal supervision and allows exercise to progress at a natural pace.

“The BioStep 2 has been one of the most successful pieces of equipment in our fitness centers,” states Lisa Bloder, Wellness Coordinator of Westminster Services, Florida. “The smooth movement makes it easy for anyone to use, while providing a great upper and lower body workout. Residents have been able to use the BioStep 2 even when they have been unable to use any other piece of equipment - and their results have been outstanding.” >>

New York City - Five years ago, 23 yeLisa Trevisanar old Italian model Lisa Trevisan collapsed on the dance floor of a disco in Venice, and woke from a coma 25 days later, paralyzed and unable to speak more than three words - "Si," "No," and "Miami" - the city where she studied English the previous summer. Slowly, she came to understand she had suffered a massive stroke of a variety that usually leaves victims permanently disabled.

But on Sunday, November 2, 2008 this once-paralyzed stroke survivor now known throughout Italy by her pen name, "Lisa Festa," crossed the finish line of the New York City Marathon, and celebrated her victory over a condition that once threatened to keep her wheelchair bound and speechless for life. Her completion of the marathon is a testimonial to her indomitable spirit - and her hard work in an Italian clinic equipped with state-of-the-art computerized rehabilitation systems developed in the U.S. and Switzerland.  >>
